Updates to the Federal Child Support Tables

Amendments to the Federal Child Support Tables (Schedule I of the Federal Child Support Guidelines) come into force on November 22, 2017 . The amendments update the tables to reflect more current tax rules.  Information about the amendments is available on the Justice Canada’s family law website at http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fl-df/child-enfant/ft-tf.html.  The amendments will affect all provinces and territories that have adopted the Federal Tables into their respective provincial child support laws which New Brunswick has done.

The amendments will not automatically change the amounts set out in an existing support order. But they could represent a “change in circumstances” that would allow either the paying parent or the receiving parent to apply for a variation of their support order if the application of the updated Federal Tables would result in a different child support amount.

If you are calculating child support for a period of time before the coming into force of the updated Federal Tables, the 2011 Federal Tables should be used to determine child support. If you are calculating child support for a period of time after the coming into force of the updated Federal Tables, the updated Federal Tables should be used to determine child support.    

The Simplified Tables and Look-up have been updated and can be found on the  Department of Justice Canada website at http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fl-df/child-enfant/fcsg-lfpae/2017/index.html  and http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fl-df/child-enfant/2017/look-rech.asp .   

The Look-up and Simplified Tables for the 2011 Federal Tables are also on the Department of Justice Canada website at http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fl-df/child-enfant/2011/look-rech.asp and http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fl-df/child-enfant/fcsg-lfpae/2011/index.html.

The 2006 version of the Federal Tables has been archived at http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fl-df/child-enfant/fcsg-lfpae/2006/index.html
